I have a plan to create a race of misunderstood monsters for Decathros that live in the mountains and are greatly feared by surrounding villages. The proverbial bogeymen, they are the stuff of the scary stories that mothers tell their children and are blamed for the mysterious disappearances that take place in the mountains. Sometimes, they even raid entire villages and depopulate them completely.
The reality is that they are actually shipwrecked extraterrestrial beings. Coming from a technologically advanced society , they are attempting to build a space-craft that would allow them to get back home. In the meantime, they are attempting to recreate their society on this planet. They are divided into a sort of hive-like society dominated by a dominant breeding pair. Although sentient, individuality for them is a fluid concept and shifts according to immediate circumstances. The bigger the hive, the less aware they are of their individualistic nature and they consequently feel happier. However, the smaller the collective unit that they belong to, the more distressed they feel as they are more keenly confronted with their individual minds. In order to combat this, they kidnap humans to join their numbers. They do not see this as a crime since they belief that they are saving the humans from less than optimal living conditions.
Are there any special details that I might be able to add in order to make this a more feasible concept? Thank s so much for any feedback or ideas that anyone here volunteers.
